The Weekender

The City’s Coolest New Sports Bar and Other Weekend Essentials

The weekend is the reindeer on your sweater.

Thursday
A New Sports Temple in Victory Park
ON DRAFT

A New Sports Temple in Victory Park

Bad news: the Cowboys are falling apart in December (again). Good news: you have a new place to see how it all works out: Draft Picks, a new sports bar with stadium seats facing one massive screen. And hey, Mavs season’s coming soon...

Now open, Draft Picks, 703 McKinney Ave, Ste 101, 972-993-3636

Bolsa’s New Grocery Store
OPEN MARKET

Bolsa’s New Grocery Store

Your favorite gas station/flatbread spot is opening a little grocery store next door. Here, you can grab everything you need for a home-cooking date: spices from the Spiceman, a bottle of Texas wine and some Bolsa-worthy meats. No, you can’t bring Bolsa’s chefs home to cook it for you.

Friday
Introducing Food Truck Fridays
TRUCK STOP

Introducing Food Truck Fridays

You’re a big supporter of lunch—it’s definitely one of your top three meals. This Friday (and every Friday in December), over seven trucks (including 3 Men and a Taco and Jack’s Chowhound) will be camped out at the Shops at Park Lane during lunchtime. Christmas shopping goes great with alligator tacos.

Second City Comes to Dallas
SECOND COMING

Second City Comes to Dallas

John Belushi. Chris Farley. Jason Sudeikis. All men with great hair. Also, they all did improv at Chicago’s Second City. This weekend, the team will be performing their Dysfunctional Holiday Revue in Dallas. Farley would want you to be there...

Dec 16, 7:30pm, $40, Wyly Theatre, 2403 Flora St, 214-880-0202

Saturday
Biking to the Deep Ellum Brewery
HIGH SPEED

Biking to the Deep Ellum Brewery

This weekend, you can bike from the Bishop Arts District to the biggest brewery inside city limits. Here, you’ll get a tour of the shiny new brewery and sit down for a pint of Backslider Blonde served in your complimentary glass beer mug. We hope it fits in your bike’s cup holder.

Dec 17, 1-6pm, $10, starts at N Bishop Ave and W 7th St
